A Mini Vacation for the day.

When Shawn and I need a mental break from the daily grind. We head south to our hometown Eugene. It's about 1 hour and 45 minutes due south from PDX.
We have the same friends, so it makes it more fun when we go visit.
We always go through the town of Junction City because we grew up in the area called Santa Clara/North Eugene. The old highway basically dumps you into SC.


SCREEEEECH go the brakes when we spot this line up of classic cars for sale.

1957 Chevy Bel Air and Pontiac Starchief, a Malibu, GTO and Camaro.
Someone likes RED!



1957 Pontiac Starchief. I love that bumper and grill!

The gas tank !



1957 Chevy Bel Air. Check out those wings!
I took these pics for my Dad, he reads this blog. He would have loved seeing these cars too.



The start of my 3 hour cut , color and highlights. My friend from High School Karen is a hiarstylist. I must say best color and highlights EVER, and giving the business to a friend just makes my day. Killing two birds with one stone, catching up on life, and getting highlights ! What could be better?



Then when done we went next door to a bar and met with Kreg and Connie. I stabbed Kreg in the leg with a pencil in middle school and still has the scar. Don't think I don't hear about it OFTEN. PLayed a game of pool, caught up on the fam and moved on to the next stop.


Then off to see Jack and Beth and bring more cupcakes!
Are they not getting so big?


Beth is so beautiful and she drew me a picture of my name and a horse.
Got to love that!



Last stop. Jim and his girl Karizma. They also have a brand new 18 day old baby named Zoey! He is a body and paint expert, who currently is out of work. So he is going to be the one who turns my rust bucket trailer in to super fabulous trailer. I might even get flames ;) yeah! I'd rather drive the two hours and give my friend the business who really needs it right now. That's how we roll...



This was a very long day, but I got fabulous hair, saw some old friends, played some pool, saw some old cool cars and got home before dark!
Next trip down will be bringing my trailer to get all purty!

I love that you got to visit some old and new (little) friends, check out old hangouts, snap those cool cars, and support your friend with such a great project. You are one cool gal!

Hope to see you sometime around PDX!
